It’s been almost seven years since Massive Attack released their last studio album 100th Window, which featured guest vocals from Sinéad O’Connor and Damon Albarn among others, so the February 2010 release of the long-awaited Heligoland is bound to attract a lot of attention. As usual, the remaining founding members Robert del Naja and Grant Marshall have lined up a stellar cast of vocalists to give the album a boost, including Hope Sandoval, Martina Topley-Bird, Elbow’s Guy Garvey and TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe, plus the return of Horace Andy and Damon Albarn. Produced by Neil Davidge, the album also features DFA’s Tim Goldsworthy and Portishead’s Adrian Utley on guitar. Songs from recording sessions with Dot Allison, Beth Orton, Elizabeth Fraser and touring vocalist Stephanie Dosen didn’t make the final cut.

01 Pray For Rain [feat. Tunde Adebimpe]
02 Babel [feat. Martina Topley-Bird]
03 Splitting The Atom [feat. Horace Andy]
04 Girl I Love You [feat. Horace Andy]
05 Psyche [feat. Martina Topley-Bird]
06 Flat Of The Blade [feat. Guy Garvey]
07 Paradise Circus [feat. Hope Sandoval]
08 Rush Minute [feat. Robert del Naja]
09 Saturday Come Slow [feat. Damon Albarn]
10 Atlas Air [feat. Robert del Naja]

‘Pray For Rain’, ‘Splitting The Atom’ and a remix of ‘Psyche’ are already available on the Splitting The Atom EP, released last month.

Catch Massive Attack (and no doubt some of their guests) on their mini UK tour in February. A percentage of ticket sales will be donated to the HOPING Foundation.
